Week 47 Life in heaven

whats up Peeps!! 
this week was so so fun! first of all... WE HAD A BAPTISM! Brother and Sister Ellis were baptized on Sunday and they looked so amazing! i love them so much!! they came out of that water so clean and full of light! I also had the opportunity to go on my first full day exchange with Sister Murdock! I feel like we were both pretty nervous haha but she is super cute and we had so much fun!! I also got to go on a Fire Exchange (when we change companions while knocking doors) and for the first one on Wednesday I was with Sister Napier and the Fire exchange on Saturday I was with Sister Guimaraes! they are all super amazing missionaries! I am seriously learning so much from all of the sisters in our sisterhood! 
the members of our ward are mostly Haitians so we get fed Haitian food all the time. let me tell you. I dont even miss Latin food anymore. Haitian food is so so good! we dont know whats in it but it doesnt even matter. 
a couple that serve their missions here like 2 years ago came to visit and they took Sister Larson and I to dinner and let me tell you. we got to eat at a restaurant right in front of the beach as we saw the sunset. we are so spoiled. I love this area so much and the members here. 
OH MY they also changed some rules for missionaries and we get two extra hours for Pday! it now starts at 8 am so you might be getting my emails earlier! they changed some other things but Pday is the only one that would affect y'all. anyway! i love you all!
